Mike Winder is one of a rare breed of small-business owners who represent the classic American small entrepreneur. As pointed out in Colin McGuire’s article on the closing of Good JuJu (Jan. 20), Mike has several businesses in downtown Frederick that offer everything from coffee to ice cream…

Mom always said, usually in response to a common teen refrain of “But all my friends are,” “If one of your friends jumps off a bridge, are you going to do that too?” In other words, just because someone does something wrong is no excuse for you to also do it.

Your report on an Interstate 270 monorail (News-Post, Jan. 8) exaggerates its feasibility. It gave the misleading impression that a monorail is less expensive to build than extra highway lanes because the $3.4 billion for the monorail was compared with the highway at $11 billion. But the $11…

Walt Staruk was back in fashion again on the Jan. 9 opinion page, peddling his two favorite bogus assertions about climate change: The prevailing science doesn’t prove humans contribute significantly to global warming, and those who presume we are want to institute global socialism in order …

In regard to the House’s impeachment of President Trump, Speaker Nancy Pelosi challenged senators to be loyal to the Constitution rather than to Trump. She also told Trump that he needs to prove his innocence. It appears that she believes in the Constitution’s degrees the same way that, as a…

In the Jan. 9 Frederick News-Post, Walt Staruk claimed that the United Nations and Greta Thunberg are behind a global, socialistic wealth-redistribution scheme, using the climate change issue to accomplish their goals, and that whatever warming that may or may not be occurring is not caused …

My perspective is that President Trump and his party often operate on fear. He insinuates: “Look what will happen if I am not here to protect you. If the liberal, socialist snobs are elected, you will lose everything. They, the liberals, will allow unfettered immigration, crime will rise, th…

I found the article by Steve Bohnel interesting and apparently well-researched. Unfortunately, he had bad data to work with. The Frederick County Board of Elections must have many people listed who no longer live in Frederick County. They cannot take a person’s name off the rolls unless that…

Mr. Staruk’s reply to Mr. Burruss rebutting man’s effect on climate change misses some critical points. While it is true that there have been warming and cooling cycles throughout geologic time, scientists are able to identify those caused by natural cycles and those caused my man. I know th…

During the holiday season, the Frederick County Democratic Party decided it was a good idea to publish on their official Facebook page a post likening elected Republicans to Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Party. The post stated, “75 years ago Patriotic Americans went to France to throw out the Nazis. N…

This really should be a no-brainer. Ryan Marshall’s article on the monorail proposal (Jan. 8) states the costs associated with each option. We can either choose to expand the already existing Metro system with a monorail that will take Frederick residents potentially all the way to Washingto…

OK, Frederick County, with the balloon-launch emergency having been successfully solved, get ready for the County Council to use every means possible to invade our lives, homes, businesses and personal transportation devices with regulations, taxes and policing in order to pursue their polit…

A reply to Ellis Burruss’ letter in the Dec. 23 News-Post: In my letter of Dec. 12, I used the term “watermelon” (green on the outside, red on the inside) in a paragraph pertaining to the U.N., the Paris Accord (a wealth transfer scheme), and Greta Thunberg (mouthpiece for her parents’ socia…

Mona Charen’s disparaging of “Lovable Ol’ Bernie” Sanders’ bid for the presidency is telling. She expresses a knee-jerk reaction rather than thoughtful criticism of policy proposals by a lifelong public servant.

We learn from syndicated columnist Mona Charen’s “Lovable Ol’ Bernie” (News-Post, Dec. 30) that “Sanders has raised nearly twice as much money as Joe Biden.” More significantly, Sanders just passed an unprecedented 5 million contributors, which is about 20 times the number of Biden’s contrib…

There are some letters to the editor like “The American split” by John Kaluza in the Dec. 9 News-Post that arrogantly spew emotional hatred about our country and President Trump. Then there is “The president and the wealth gap” from Robert Peters in the Dec. 23 News-Post. That letter is full…

In response to Mr. Gill’s Dec. 26 letter to the editor, “Trump impeachment facts,” I do think many, possibly most independent-thinking Americans, recognize that anonymous accusations like those of the now-debunked Russian collaboration hoax fall apart when the light shines in.
